Have Your Say in Colchester
The next Police and Crime Commissioner public meeting discussing local crime and community safety issues will take place in Colchester on Wednesday June 25, 2014.
The public briefing document containing information about the policing model in the district of Colchester, the latest reported crime figures for the area, and significant context concerning crime trends is now online and can be accessed by clicking on the link below. It will also be available at the public meeting.
Very sadly, there have been two recent murders in Colchester. District Commander Chief Insp Richard Phillibrown will be able to provide people attending the meeting on June 25 with an update on the investigations and address any concerns they may have.
Nick Alston said: “We’ve had an excellent series of public meetings in all parts of Essex over the last year and a half, and we’re looking to build on those events. I encourage everyone who lives in Colchester or anywhere in the Colchester district to come along to the meeting and raise the issues that matter to them. We’ll also be discussing what the new local policing plans recently announced by the Chief Constable may mean for Colchester.
“At the meeting, we explore the facts and context around any crime trends, with briefings from the local Essex Police District Commander, Chief Inspector Richard Phillibrown, and the Community Safety Partnership. Everyone attending the meeting can put their questions directly to the police, the community safety team, and to me. I will also ask challenging questions of the police and council, as well as highlighting some of the excellent work that is taking place.
“If you care about keeping your community as safe as it can possibly be, please come along and get involved.”
The next event is scheduled for:
Time: 18:30 to 20:30, Wednesday June 25, 2014
Location: Swinburne Hall, Sheepen Road, Colchester Institute, Colchester, Essex, CO3 3LL
Nick Alston adds: “Each meeting will be two hours long. We’d love people to attend all the meeting, but if you can only make part of it, please still come along. I want your views to be part of the debate about how we can best keep the streets and countryside of Essex safe.”
